look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

Medium to dark brown in color with a little bit of a tan head.

Scent is of coffee, but cheap coffee. Roasted malt with the caramel makes this taste fairly nutty which is not what I was looking for in this beer.

I am not a big fan of this one as it is weak and has a taste that is not compatible with my palate.

12 oz. brown bottle with clear freshness dating. Poured into a glass, the beer is dark brown with amber highlights. There is a fairly dense tan head.

The beer has an aroma of roasted malt and day old coffee.

There are lots of roasted malts and dark fruit during the first taste. The beer is a hint of dark chocolate and some percolator coffee. More raisins in the finish.

The mouth is yeoman like and the beer is pretty enjoyable.

Clear brown colored ale with a small tan colored head. Nothing outstanding looking.

Sells sweet and smoky with a mainly coffee and caramel aroma. Scent of roasted pinion nuts.

Initially this is is coffee with caramel syrup. Middle of the pack for sweetness this is like a slightly under-carbonated coffee soda. Mildly bitter, for a Utah law beer this isn't boring.

Overall worth a try but not quite a six pack level of try.
